Tam was an avid football fan and enjoyed watching a game with a glass or two of malt whisky. During his time of being involved in the MND-SMART trail, Tam spent most of his time occupied using his eyegaze computer reading or researching different things of interest to him. 

Having had MND for 20yrs, Tam loved using all the smart technology available to him. He could basically do everything for himself using his computer, switching tv on, flicking through channels or turning his fan on or off. Even turning lights on and off without the need to ask for help.  

Tam sadly died in early 2020 from MND. The MND-SMART team are incredibly grateful for his contribution to the development and promotion of the trial and what it will mean for people diagnosed with MND going forward.
